Gwen Stefani accepted top honors Monday night at Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards and she made sure to give her boyfriend, Blake Shelton, a sweet shout-out.

During her acceptance speech, she thanked Blake for “kissing me back to life.” Gwen said that just a year and a half ago she was “in a pool of tears” following her divorce from Gavin Rossdale.

“I was so low that I didn’t think there was any way I could pick myself back up,” she said. “And I remembered God gave me that gift [of music]. I knew I was chosen to do that. So I basically started pouring my heart into music, and music has saved my life.”

Gwen also told Entertainment Tonight that this past year has been like “someone said, ‘Hey, wake up!’ and I was like, ‘Whoa! Oh my god!'” She added, “I thought I was seeing in color, but now I’m really seeing in color. I didn’t know I was in a cocoon ready to bust out.”

She also said of Blake, “It’s incredible to have a best friend like that guy. He’s an amazing person.”
